Review & Swatch: Annabelle Edge Lipsticks*


Annabelle has recently launched the Edge Lipsticks, an innovative diamond-shaped lipstick that is said to effortlessly define your lips and give them volume and dimension. The lipsticks retail for $9.95 each and comes in 12 various shades ranging from neutrals to bright reds. I have graciously been sent the entire collection, including the lip scrub which they recommend to be applied to the lips before each lipstick as it provides a smooth and moisturized canvas for application. 

I have all the lipsticks (minus the lip scrub) swatched below on both the arm and on the lips - I personally found that so long as your lips are already smooth, it is not necessary to use the lip scrub as it does create a slick to the lips that makes the lipstick a bit slippery on application. I love the almost matte finish to these lipsticks and they apply perfectly on their own without becoming patchy at all - all the swatches below are with one swipe as well which means they have a fantastic formulation. If you wish for more of a shine look to the lipstick, then definitely go for the lip scrub before hand!


Above you see the innovative diamond-shaped lipstick - to apply, it is recommended that you place the point to your cupid's bow and apply like other regular lipsticks. 


My favorite shades are: Kelly, Serena, Winnie, Rita, Iris, Soo and Taylor. I know it seems like a lot but a majority of them are the berry/red shades that I believe are perfectly formulated in terms of color payoff. They pack a punch, are just so beautiful and bold. 


I highly recommend that you pick up a few of these lipsticks, at the price point it is way less than most high-end lipsticks and I really believe that this formulation is so much better than most that I've tried.

Until next time, XO - M.

  2. I REALLY like Brigitte, Michelle and Winnie on you! I'm not sure how I feel about the edge-ness of the lipsticks but I've had good Annabelle lip products before so I'm sure they know what they are doing!

    1. key is that you do have to pivot the edge -- if you do that then u do see that sharp line... it was a tricky the first time but then all these swatches took about 15-20 minutes so not bad!

  8. These sound wonderful! Anna is the type of shade I would usually go for, but I think Serena would go well with my hair!
